This 18m catamaran ferry was designed by Naval Architecture and Marine Solutions to RINA classification. Designed as a commuter ferry in aluminium, the vessel will comfortably cruise at 20+ knots and carry 55 passengers in air conditioned comfort. The aft deck has additional storage for bicycles.
A raised wheelhouse allows for excellent visibility, ideal for close quarters manoeuvring in and around passenger wharfs and other marine traffic.
Additional outdoor seating on the upper deck gives the vessel the flexibility of operating tourist cruises outside of its scheduled ferry services.
Passenger movements are optimised with boarding lobbies fore and aft to ensure prompt and safe turn arounds at port.
The unique hull form has been developed by NMS to maximise efficiency and operability, whilst minimising structural weight. The modern appearance sets the vessel apart from other ferries in the marketplace.
